Have been using this phone eva since believe me its just the way it is just donno what y'all are complaining about
After a half a year of usage, the first power-hole start to become janky. Half year after that, the other one also started to become bad.
The camera isn't good (good enough if you aren't concerned about the quality, but I really don't like how the pictures look).
Not to forget, this phone barely ever got updates after the release. In terms of software updates, I really do not recommend switching to ASUS.
If you like gaming and a big ass battery, this phone is good for you. I think I wasn't the correct user-group for this kind of phone (although I'm a gamer, but on PC), as other than gaming and battery, this phone has nothing that benefits it over any other device.

Used it as my primary device until Feb 2022 .Had minor issues like heating n turning offs. But apart from that the phone has been a beast. The battery health is still excellent. I am using a Vivo x70 pro as my primary device and this Rog 2 for gaming. Still going strong. Everything works and all games work perfectly

Asus website has removed RoG Phone 2 so you'll never get the bootloader and the newest update anymore.
GSMArena crew, please update RoG Phone II. Android 9.0 (upgradeable to 11).

Anonymous, 07 Jun 2022Is it getting android 12 ?Android 11 is the last OS update for the phone. Last security update will be around July or August 2022, 3 years after the phone launched.
2 years later mine suddenly died. When charging it suddenly just didn't turn on anymore. I suspect maybe the battery though I'm not sure. I only ever use the included charger and I hardly even game on it anymore so I don't think I fried the insides. Oh well it was a good experience.
I love it...i got second...8/128...no issues...no leg at all...very worthy in 2022...still great perfomance....

Love the Community, 27 Dec 2021Hey GSMArena! RoG Phone II just got updated to Android 11. Please update the page.Is there any bugs? My ROG phone is still on Android 9 (Pie) because I don't want to update my phone for fear of bugs and planned obsolescence.

It cost me over $200.00 Canadian to have ubreakifix (local repair shop) replace the screen for me. I couldn't find the screen for sale for under $250 if I was going to do it myself.
On the sound side, there is a bug that can significantly increase your bass on the front speakers
